Note: ISSN searches are often more effective than Title searches for journals. Please do not use abbreviated words in title searches:
In the above example, ECU holds this title (record 1), but not the required volume/issue (click on Details then look at Availability details at the end of the item record). You do not need to select a record which indicates the volume/ issue is held. Rules are built into VDX to send your request to our preferred suppliers based on availability and cost. For example you may select a record from UWA Library, but your requested item may be supplied by Murdoch University Library.
2. When you have identified the required title, click Get it!
3. Enter the relevant Author, Article title, Volume/Issue, Date, and Pages in the Part Details section:

Note: When requesting a copy you are prompted to accept the Copyright conditions – click OK.
